During the last January to March season, Desert Fruit Namibia produced high quality Barhi dates. These have been exported to Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Kuwait, Cambodia, Indonesia, Maldives, Singapore, UK and Switzerland as well as the royalty houses in the Emirates, which is a great honour for Desert Fruit Namibia. Barhi is a unique date eaten in a fresh state before it is naturally dried. It is regarded as a delicacy in the Middle and Far East where it is more widely known. Desert Fruit was established in 2005. The first date palms were planted in 2006 and the farm is one of only a handful of date producers in the Southern Hemisphere. Desert Fruit has 22 000 date palms of varying ages. – Fresh Plaza
